For more info, http://www.planesoffame.org/airshow04.html

I plan on getting there early to meet a few people and get a good spot on the runway. A few of us can set up camp and talk and visit the displays. I think 9AM would be good. So we can get a good spot. Does anyone know how fast it fills?

So, who is in?

Can you take pictures of the warbirds from close up or do you have to stand 75' away?

Robin and I will probably ride our bikes out there. Are you going on Sat. or Sun.?
Chino Air show will fill up fast for those who have never been to one, so do not wait too late in the day to go. Yes, unfortunately they do charge for parking.
Yes Gibbage, they do love to fly the P38 at the show (such a sweet sound). Are you going to wear the IL2 shirt so people who haven't met you will Know who you are?

Gibbage1
05-03-2004, 11:58 PM
Yep! I will definitly wear my IL2 T-shirt even though its black, and it will be 100 degrees!

Here is me in the T-shirt manning the waist gunner position of a B-24.

As for what time, I say 9AM we meet at the gates. We can have a group meet there and we can go resurve a large area by the runway and setup. Then people can just find me in my shirt. Since I think I would be the only one there wearing an IL2 T-shirt.

Do you think 9AM is early enough to get a good spot?

I have a digital camera with a 8x optical zoom, 4x digital zoom, and I will get a 2x telephoto lense. So thats 64x zoom and I will have a 6' tripod. I will be able to see the pilots eye color http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Plus the displays are not roped off. I will post LOTS of pics on my web page that weekend when i get back.

Why would anyone go all the way to China for an air show?

Chino (Which used to be nothing but dairies- but has turned into justanotherbedroomcommunity) has an old WW2 training field that hosts a great(!) airshow that features a lot of vintage aircraft. (Part of the Confederate Air Force)
If you are in the southern California area, take the 10 Freeway to Chino and exit at Euclid Ave., head south a couple of miles and the airport will be on the left side of the road (look for the traffic jam).
If you like a lot of vintage military aircraft, then this is one airshow that you do NOT want to miss. A lot of the aircraft you can even get in touching distance from; plus both of the Planes of Fame Museums are open to tour with your admission fee to the show!
